Drink and Draw 14

Spent this evening out at Sandbar with the lovely fellas of the Manchester Comix Collective. The theme was edible drawings and our good friend Tom made a wonderful assortment of muffins and cakey things for us to draw on with icing and then eat. Add to those the massive cookies Adam Cadwell brought...well it was a sad sight of bloated, tipsy indie artists and cartoonists found around that table at the end. Everyone just wanted to curl up and sleep, the atmosphere was so pleasant.

When the photos are sorted out I will post up my edible doodles. But while the cakes were going around I also did a few sketches in my book. First some character design scribbles that degenerated into drawing the Power Rangers. Hmm.

Working a little on posing characters:

Gumbo background work. Possibly the entrance hall (well, one of them) for the castle in the evil tree I posted earlier in the blog.

Gumbo stands off against some dragony, alien buggy thing. This one is definitely getting inked and finished at some point.
